Finnair Cargo receives IATA’s PHARMA certificate as the first airline in the world

Finnair Cargo has passed IATA’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics program (CEIV Pharma). Finnair had joined the program under the successful Brussels Airport CEIV Pharma Community approach, as Brussels is Finnair Cargo's 2nd hub.

Pharmaceuticals (e.g. vaccines, biotech medicines) are among the most delicate products transported as air cargo, and therefore, it is essential to ensure their transport in a standardized way, following strict temperature control requirements.

“We are committed to be at the forefront in the fast growing Pharma transport segment and provide excellent service to our customers. Therefore, we are honored to be the first carrier in the world to complete the IATA pharmaceutical certification process ", says Juha Järvinen, Finnair’s Chief Commercial Officer.

The certificate was presented to Finnair Cargo in conjunction of the laying of the cornerstone of Finnair’s new cargo terminal, the COOL Nordic Cargo (CNC) hub. The new state-of-the-art terminal will feature separate temperature controlled areas for the handling of Pharmaceuticals as well as other perishables foodstuffs.
